I don't make specific recommendations because I am a moderator. If I were in your shoes I would look at HostGator and compare all other plans I looked at to the plans they have. They are very good, but maybe not the best value.
Ignore all space amount larger than a gigabyte. Chance are you will only use a few hundred MB. Bandwidth in excess of 50-100 GB is also something you will never use on a shared account.
Do look at the maximum number of Databases and simultaneous connections allowed. Do look at what CPU or other server resources you are allowed to use. Most people never use the space or bandwidth. They get into trouble over the connections or resource usage. Hosts usually hide this information in the TOS or Usage guidelines. They almost never put it in the specification area.
Also ignore any host who does not use a cPanel or DirectAdmin control panel. The primary reasons are: it indicates cheapness and make it very hard to move your site later.
